  1. Numbnuts* - “There's been crewing issues over recent years with at least one but I'm thinking two off with long term sick,(bad back etc) to be honest milking the system. Don’t talk shite, there’s a lot more to it than that and if you knew who your talking about you wouldn't be saying that! There’s no milking any system going on...

    He’s just doing at home what he normally does at ‘so called work’; ‘Lead by example’ - What a thick fxxk !!!
  3. Just incase you never heard ! http://www.tynwald.org.im/business/listen/AgainFiles/ENVI20180511a.mp3

  6. Yes I think the pair of them are in the IOM clink, do you teally think the owners would fork out that sort of money on them pair to pay compensation ect or just leave them there for 6month instead and get someone else to skipper the boats ? Difficult one that !! Another dram please.....
  7. If there’s a way oot o’payin ~ they’ll find it........... Still one step ahead are you Mr Leakie Boot
  8. It’s corruption of the highest degree ! The DEFA know if they’re not careful markets could be in jeopardy if they push things tooo far !!!
  9. From 3FM news. The Island's fisheries protection vessel has been to sea almost 50 times over the past year - but the government won't say when. A freedom of information request to the Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture asked for details of the vessel's deployments. DEFA says in the past 12 months, the boat has left port 47 times to patrol the Island's waters. But the department says detailing when each patrol took place could tip off those the vessel's supposed to catch. JUST ABOUT SUMS IT ALL UP !
  10. Call it a suspension ? What a load of shite, It won’t make any difference to them, that vessel will be fishing outside for Queenies anyway OR he will be after he returns from the fishing around the East coast of UK in about three months time..... DEFA fisheries are you that incompetent that you can’t put an argument forward to the courts in order to have maximum effect on these vessels from arrest after all that was publicised by your Minister. I certainly hope for the sake of it that Mr John King departs himself from the Scallop and Queenie Management board just like one of the Manx fishermen did.
  11. Yes it could get messy alright; DEFA fisheries will be going for revocation of the licence, just thinking about Minister Boots statement in the news and the letters to all the Owners/skippers stating any messing about ‘thats it’ ! If it’s anything like the last IOM Prosecution (I think it was) where by one of the Manx skippers had to resign from the Fisheries management board because of his prosecution, if this skipper or who he works for is involved surely this will also be the case GreyWolf !
  12. Homarus; Don’t know what the actual offence is, however referring back to ‘Boots big bold talk on things in the news’ I think they must of been waiting to press on with this one, “SO” I would say information from fishing inside the 12mile limit.
  13. In the Manx news today; A 51-year-old man from Scotland has appeared in court charged with a sea fishing licence offence. Anthony John True, of Mill Flats, Kirkcudbright, had the case against him adjourned until March 13. The court heard that Mr True was the skipper of the vessel concerned and the boat’s owner had also been summonsed to appear on March 13. Ohh I wonder who this chap skippers boats for ???? I wonder if they were fishing for KING or queen scallops! Anyway all we can do is await the outcome, not forgetting “Boot’s recent stance on the revocation of an IOM licence if anyone is found guilty of such offences”
  14. Joking aside, I said all along this would never be put through unless they would be told to land on the Island then there’s no way out of it ! Anyway now; Manx fishermen will have to regulate their own waters instead of the useless Government fisheries department and it’s fishery patrol vessel, they are going to have to be mighty vigilant and report any wrongdoings just like what happens in New Zealand and Australia, other Skippers report matters and it’s looked into, all kept confidential and if it’s proven then then other vessel / Licence is reprimanded. Maybe this way is more easy going homurus ! Fishermen will always be fishermen after all !!
